Hello everyone! Lots of things going on! First of all, Sam has drawn several new digital stamps for our ETSY store, Dreamer's Boutique. I am posting one of them, who we are calling "Chip, the Cat" (cause his pudgy cheeks look like a chipmunk's!), for you here as a FREE digital download until July 4th. After that you will find it for purchase in our ETSY store. I think you will agree that Sam did a great job on this! Remember that all you have to do to download this is right click on the image and click Save As.... Then save it in your pics, or wherever you like. All you do at that point is print it. If you want it larger or smaller than the original, you can change it in any photo software you have, or even in your printer program. You know, where you have the choice of printing full page, 8 x10, 5 x 7, wallet size etc. You do not have to know ANYTHING about digi scrapping to do this. Just print, cut it out and use it on your card or lo. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and I'll be glad to help you out
I used Chip the Cat to make this card to enter in the Scrap'nArts June challenge about using chalks on your card. I chalked most of the image of Chip the Cat. I did use the chalks with a water brush around the edges to help stay in the lines. I also chalked the background of the digital stamp, the background of the sentiment, and the bottom of the base card. I love using chalks. I haven't used them much lately, so I really appreciated the challenge!
I also did another June challenge for Scrap'nArts blog. This one was about using ripped paper on your card or lo for dimension. I combined this with a challenge for Lucy's Summer Cyber Crop at My Sketch World, where you had to use the word Summer in the title. This was actually Toni's challenge. So this lo, One Special Summer, fit both challenges. It is actually a photo of me when I was a little girl. What memories that photo brings back!
I have one more thing you must see. Sam's niece, Anna, who is not even a teenager yet, drew the most darling fairy! She obviously inherited Sam's talent. I was so impressed with her drawing that we are posting it in our ETSY shop as a digital stamp also. But for now I am posting it here for 2 days as ANOTHER FREE digital stamp for you. I think you will be as amazed as I! Please leave Anna some love! Looks like we have a future designer here! (Please leave Sam some love too - he gets all pouty. lol)
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
